Going to Market

To Marshfield Vintage Market that is~~~

Well I've taken the plunge and committed to doing a show.  Were having our very own antique/collectible/vintage market right here in Coos Bay, Oregon, August 16 & 17.  I'm so excited to be participating in this 1st annual event. 

Thea Snyder of Haven Decor has done a great job organizing this event.   She designed the flyer below and I think it's just brilliant!!!

I bet your asking yourself why it's being billed Marshfield Vintage Market?  Well once upon a time Coos Bay was Marshfield. I think it's a very cool nod to the past, especially since this is an antique/vintage market.

I showed you a vintage wooden hanger (which I collect) from a Marshfield dry cleaners that I found at a local estate sale here in this post.

I've been working non-stop trying to get pieces done for the show. I got this twin size bed done...and it sold Saturday afternoon!!!

 Was going to number the drawers 1, 2, 3 on this cute little sewing chest that I converted to a night stand...well it sold Monday morning!

I was going to use the buffet/hutch that I did this post about..but it sold a couple of days after I decided to do the show! It's went to a very good home clear across the state in Walowa, Oregon. Thanks Nyoda!!! 

Remember this chair? Yeah...sold!

So far ten pieces of furniture that I had earmarked for the show have sold...all in the space of two weeks! I'm thrilled about the sales but I'm also worried that I'm not going to have enough pieces to fill up my space. YIKES!!!

I've got to do more of these up...last two I had on guessed it... SOLD today! In fact I'll be taking some hangers and signs that I showed you along with the bent and stamped forks from this post.

Shhh! I'm taking the ironing board and Le Jardin screen that I stenciled in this post.

Finished this mid century metal chair this weekend. Cleaned and sealed the finish as I found it and added a burlap coffee sack as upholstery.  It's going nowhere near the shop! In fact I'm hoarding a whole bunch of stuff in the garage!!! (like I didn't before, lol)!

I'll try to keep you posted on my progress. But with only 10 days left I don't know if I'll even have time to sleep!  You can also keep tabs and get up-to-date information on the facebook page.

Thank You For Stopping By~~~
Happy Hunting and Gathering!!!
